One of the nation’s largest food companies recently showed its woke credentials by advocating the left-wing narrative that Juneteenth is America’s true Independence Day.

According to The Daily Wire, Tyson Foods, which trails only Pepsi as the nation’s top food producer, offered its employees shirts that promoted Juneteenth, which became a federal holiday under President Joe Biden.

June 19, 1865, was reportedly the day slaves in Texas were informed the Civil War was over and that they were free in the wake of the Union’s victory.

The Daily Wire reported that it had obtained internal company emails highlighting the clothing offered to mark the Juneteenth celebration.

One shirt reportedly said, “Juneteenth is my Independence Day.” Another featured the date July 4 crossed out, followed by the phrase, “Juneteenth 1865 because my ancestors weren’t free in 1776.”

The Daily Wire added that many shirts also incorporated the black-power fist.

One version offered encouraging sayings by citing prominent black Americans, including left-wing radicals like Malcolm X and Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters.

The Daily Wire noted that when its reporters began asking Tyson about the shirts, a company source said its Virginia office was directed to cancel the sale and refund payment to any employee who had purchased a shirt.

A Tyson spokesman later told the outlet that the company was “unaware of the t-shirt designs.”

“Tyson Foods was unaware of the t-shirt designs proposed by a team member,” the unnamed spokesman said.

“Upon review, it was determined that the t-shirts do not meet the company’s dress code policy, and they will not be sold or distributed.”

The Daily Wire added that it was not clear how the shirts violated the company’s dress code. Tyson did not respond to follow-up questions and added, “Numerous employees complained internally about the shirts.”
